This is a book of prayers formed and accumulated over the years by many people in multiple contexts. Since I am unable to determine where all of these prayers came from I will not apply credit to any particular individuals, except for what is offered in the acknowledgements section. Instead, I will give credit to the followers of The Way. Early Christians were referred to as followers of The Way, and were only later known as Christians. As you may know, the Way is Christ— the Messiah and Lord and Teacher for the people, who remains with us to this day in the Spirit.
